How does Uma Maintain Her Health?
Even though Thurman lives a busy life, she doesn’t let her busyness take her down when it comes to health. Uma is not a big fan of living the life of a soldier but she does love to live the life of a healthy person.
She has simply built a set of rules following which, she keeps her health in check. Don’t worry those rules aren’t that hard to follow. You can also adopt them and live a healthy life just like her.
The American actress, activist, producer, and former model, Geena Davis, is also famous for living a healthy life.
1. Take Care of What You Eat
This is the most important rule, Thurman. What we eat has a very big effect on our health and body. Since food is crucial for our growth we should take care in choosing what are we putting in our stomachs.
Thurman eats organic food. Her diet includes grains such as rice and other grains that are used in pasta, organically grown fruits and vegetables, sea vegetables, beans, nuts, fish, and lean meat.
By eating all these healthy foods, Uma has managed to lead a healthy life despite the increase in obesity in the world.
2. Exercise More Often
If anything other than a healthy diet is necessary for fitness, it is exercise. It not only helps in burning calories but also makes our bones and muscles strong. Uma does a lot of exercise to live a healthy life.
Her daily workout routine includes 10 jumping jacks, 10 high knees, 10 crunches, 10 calf raises, 10 lunges, 10 push-ups, 10 squats, 10 sit-ups, 10 walking lunges, and 10 tricep steps, and a 1-minute plank. She follows this set 5 times a day.
In this way, Uma keeps her body disciplined. Besides working out in the gym, Uma also engages in other activities. “I have a hectic schedule, but when I have a spare hour or so, I walk. I also love to horse-ride, and in winter months, I ski and snowboard,” Uma said while discussing her healthy activities.
She added, “When I’m on set, my Pilates Trainer comes in to train me. Really, I try to make time for it.” In this way, Thurman burns the extra calories while at the same time enjoying her time with her friends and family.
3. Drink A lot of Water
Drinking water throughout the day is another secret of Uma’s slim figure. Drinking more water can be fuel for our bodies as it helps us maintain our hydration level. Talking about her water drinking routine, Uma said:
“I drink gallons of spring water every day. It’s good for the skin and flushes out my system. I also work out a lot, and from time to time I follow an ultra-strict macrobiotic diet.” And it is not an exaggeration.
To maintain her hydration level, as Thurman does a lot of workouts, she drinks a lot of water throughout the day.
4. Inspire to Live as a Vegetarian
In the past, Thruman has tried to live as a vegetarian. She lived the life of a vegetarian for years. Unfortunately, she couldn’t go much farther and eventually failed in keeping meat at a distance.
Talking about this, Uma said, “One of my shameful shames is that I do not have the strength to become a vegetarian because, even though I think it’s morally better, I’m a carnivore. So I really struggle with that.“
She further said, “I am rather ashamed to say that I had a barbecue for Easter. Fortunately, all my friends and family are on the same wavelength. Everyone tries not to eat meat all the time, so when we cook for a family meal, everyone sits at the table.”
Thurman’s current weight is only 55 kgs (121 pounds) and her height is 5 ft 11 inches. This shows Thurman’s dedication to living a healthy life.
Not only in her acting career but throughout her life, Uma has aspired to live a happy and healthy life. She has managed to achieve both health and happiness and is a good example for anyone who wants to do the same.
